via @GlobeChadFinn: “In a scathing press release, DISH TV announces it has removed NESN from its service.”


So YouTube TV bounced it and now Dish TV.

I like what this guy had to say-

So far Xfinity has been the winner in our house. As long as you stay on top of your bill and renegotiate every couple of years. I like the format of the voice remote/channel guide. I like the online billing center and the service has been spot on for us.

That may be an outlying position but I’m sticking with Xfinity, that is until they remove my sports and then I go directly to streaming with ala carte subscriptions.

Harrier Hawk On the Hunt

We took a ride up to Salisbury State Reservation recently in search of raptors, and despite looking for them we were still a little surprised to find this Northern Harrier hawk persistently hunting right in our immediate range. He did not seem to catch anything but the wind was carrying him around so fast I would have been surprised to see him successfully capture prey. It’s a nice treat to ride up there. Parking is free now and there’s always something to watch.

HAPPY WINTER! From Thomas Philbrook and looking back…
